How to maintain your dehumidifier

There are a number of things that you can do regularly at home to make sure that your dehumidifier is in a good condition to minimise the chance of a breakdown with your appliance. These include:

Cleaning the filters, air inlet and outlet: You should clean your air filters and remove any dust around the air inlet and outlet periodically every 2 weeks. For further information on cleaning your filter, please see how do I clean my filter?

Clean the water tank: You need to clean the water tank at least once a month. The tank can accumulate mould and mildew if left uncleaned over time. Clean the bucket with some washing up liquid and air dry it before returning it back to the dehumidifier. Take extra care to avoid cracking the tank or disturbing any minor mechanical parts whilst cleaning the tank.

Continuous hose: If you use the continuous hose, it must be cleaned once a month. Remove the hose and flush out any residues inside the hose. Unplug your dehumidifier and clean the hose connection mouth on the dehumidifier to remove any residue. Air dry the hose before reinstalling it. If the hose has accumulated mould and it cannot be reached for cleaning, you need to replace the hose.

Clean the exterior panels: Clean the exterior panels by wiping with a damp cloth to remove dust and stains. Make sure you unplug the mains socket first.
